Online education fraud : the diary of a short seller by Robert MacArthur( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the mid-to-late 1990's, the Department of Education had serious concerns about one of the country's largest schools, Computer Learning Centers (CLC). With over two dozen locations nationwide, CLC had grown rapidly through its use of federal loan money. In early 1998, the Illinois Attorney General filed a fraud lawsuit against CLC, which prompted
Romantic art in distress : the despair of French aesthetics in the twentieth century by Robert MacArthur( Book )

4 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hence, the theme of this dissertation is cultural despair and illness. The subjects are used to portray this illness in the state it had reached by the 1920's and 1930's. It is concluded that basic inherent weaknesses that were latent to romanticism came to the surface in the twentieth century because that era was marked by a culmination of historical crises which exposed the hidden cultural one. The study deals with all the general tendencies of romanticism in a critical manner. The intention is to point out the dangers of some of these tendencies, and in what manner they were dealt with by the three subjects, whose approaches to romanticism were varied

Status and New Capabilities of Computer Program HEC-6; 'Scour and Deposition in Rivers and Reservoirs'( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Last year the Hydrologic Engineering Center (HEC) and the Waterways Experiment Station incorporated the results from more than ten years of research and development into a new version of computer program HEC-6: 'Scour and Deposition in Rivers and Reservoirs' (HEC, 1977). Because of the extensive modifications made to HEC-6, an entirely new User's Manual was also prepared. HEC released a Beta Test Version of the program in the fall of 1989, for field testing. Public release of the new version of HEC-6 is scheduled for September 1990. This paper describes the present status of the program as of April 1990, the expanded capabilities, and the improved documentation to be included in the forthcoming release of computer program HEC-6. Keywords: Computer programs; User manuals; Sediment transport modeling; Deposition; One-dimensional mobile boundary model; Rivers; Reservoirs. (CP)
Introduction and Application of Kinematic Wave Routing Techniques Using HEC-1( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document discusses the application of the kinematic wave routing method in the Flood Hydrograph Package (HEC-1) for analyzing urban runoff processes. The material is presented in two chapters and a comprehensive example. Chapter 1 presents introductory material necessary for an understanding of the theory, assumptions, equations and numerical methods incorporated into HEC-1 for kinematic wave flood routing. The physical processes of the urban runoff and stream flow routing are discussed briefly and related to the kinematic wave capabilities in HEC-1. Chapter 2 explains methods of applying kinematic wave routing techniques using HEC-1. Data requirements along with specific methods of applying kinematic wave routing techniques to runoff problems in urban hydrology are discussed. The chapters have been prepared so the user can either read one or both. A user interested only in the theory, or only in application procedures, can read the appropriate chapter
ROMANTIC ART IN DISTRESS: THE DESPAIR OF FRENCH AESTHETICS IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY by ROBERT MACARTHUR( )

in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation concerns itself with the period of the 1920's and 1930's in French intellectual history. Three prominent figures have been chosen from French culture of this period--Nobel Prize-winning author Roger Martin du Gard, cubist painter George Braque, and Christian existentialist Gabriel Marcel--to illustrate the thesis that this era witnessed a major breakdown in the "romantic style." This latter term is employed to describe the prevailing culture of the West dating from the eighteenth century. It is the view of this study that beyond the catastrophic wars and destruction that afflicted the West during this time, there was an underlying crisis taking place in this "romanticism" that caused as much, as was caused by, the events. Hence, the theme of this dissertation is cultural despair and illness. The subjects are used to portray this illness in the state it had reached by the 1920's and 1930's. It is concluded that basic inherent weaknesses that were latent to romanticism came to the surface in the twentieth century because that era was marked by a culmination of historical crises which exposed the hidden cultural one. The study deals with all the general tendencies of romanticism in a critical manner. The intention is to point out the dangers of some of these tendencies, and in what manner they were dealt with by the three subjects, whose approaches to romanticism were varied
